Other liquid substances which are commonly used in Aromatherapy treatment are hydrosols and vegetable oils. Hydrosols are aromatic by-products made during the productive procedure of essential oils and can be used for skin care, compresses, house sanitization, clothes washing and more. Many pure Hydrosols are free of alcohol and other harmful substances and can be ingested after inquiring a druggist or a physician. Vegetable oils are also called base or carrier oils because are used for diluting essential oils before they are carried to the skin. Vegetable oils come from various seed and plants and cannot be vaporized like essential oils.

Aromatherapists believe that each aromatherapy essential oil has unique therapeutic properties and the appropriate use of them can be beneficial for our health.

Essential oils have the ability to penetrate skin and disperse throughout the body very quickly. Moreover, they are very potent substances and consequently attention must be paid, especially by inexperienced persons. Usually, aromatherapy essential oils should be used with carrier (base) oil and not be applied directly on skin. Furthermore, essential oils are often adulterated bye cheat suppliers with cheaper substances such as synthetic ingredients and alcohols and therefore they lose their therapeutic potential and can be dangerous at the same time.
